Statement of Interest

A-Group with Aboyne Castle, Mains of Aboyne, Home Farm, South Lodge, West Lodge, Walled Garden and Ice House. "CEA" stands for Charles, 4th Earl of Aboyne, and also appears on the ice house (see separate listing) of some 70 years later, this time representing his grandson the 6th Earl of Aboyne. Allach Bridge was originally crossed to reach the castle from the East Lodge (now demolished).
